Abstract : FORTRAN programs (written as subroutines) are given to perform statistical tests which are not based on any particular underlying distribution for the data. The data are entered from a calling program, and the subroutine returns either the significance level for the tests or a correlation coefficient and its significance. Tests include the runs test for randomness of data, six hypothesis tests, the sign test, the Wilcoxon matchedpairs signedranks test, the Friedman twoway analysis of variance, the KolmogorovSmirnov twosample test, the KruskalWallis oneway analysis of variance, and two correlation tests, the Spearman rank correlation and the Kendall coefficient of concordance. Examples are given for the use of all tests. (Author)
